by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ahead by more, by five points. then at 10:00 eastern time, polls will be closed in all of those states and we'll be closing polls in the 10:00 eastern time in that hour in the states that you see blinking right here. these four states. of those four states, iowa, montana, nevada, and utah, two of them are going to be watched really closely. those, of course, are iowa and nevada. the "real clear politics" polling average in iowa right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states
did last time. >> from the get-go, mr. obama promised so many things that i didn't believe he could do it. and he has proven that he couldn't do it. >> reporter: robert stevens is an independent and a obama 2008 supporter. >> it was something different for the country, something that hadn't happened before, with a black president. so i got caught up in that a little bit. but i think he's a disappointment. >> you don't like what you got but you're not sold on the alternative? >> absolutely not. at this point i don't know who i'm going to vote for. >> reporter: tense final days. in a place long known for historic battle fields. >> so close like almost all the battleground what happens in the end what happens on the ground. both parties say they've got a much better ground operation than 2008. the republicans say they've knocked on more than a million doors and they say their early voting numbers are improved. the democrats say no way. they will win virginia again because of this 60 plus offices statewide, latino strags up 19%. and under 60% under the age of 30. the democrats hope will pu
a positive rating for his efforts these past few days. during his re-election pause, if you call it that, mr. obama reminded americans he has presidential duties and also found a couple unlikely friends along the way, one being new jersey governor chris christie and now tonight a big one, new york mayor michael bloomberg. with both sides back to regular base, what will sandy's lasting effects be, meaning through tuesday? jeff zeleny is a national political correspondent for "the new york times," and howard fineman is the editorial director for "the huffington post" and an msnbc political analyst. let's look at new jersey governor chris christie just last night in a press conference where he continued to lavish praise on the president. let's watch. >> the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leader should be giving to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction as i have had with the president since i've known him, and i think it's because we'
is the wall street journal on that story. even as mr. romney and mr. obama canceled a political appearances tuesday, the two campaigns -- escalated a heated exchange over mitt romney suggestion that the president also bailout had benefited china. he returned to pennsylvania in hopes of returning the momentum. the story wall street journal goes on to talk about that many have come out including those in the auto industry to say that the governor was wrong on this ad, that he is running in the state of ohio. we will talk about that more in about 10 minutes when reid wilson of the hot line joins us to talk about october surprises and all things campaign 2012. democratic caller, go ahead. caller: i think one of the things people are not realizing , and people who think the global warming who does not exist -- here's an issue. there was a geologist on cnn in explained that a cold front came in from the northwest, right through chicago. one day last week we were sitting at 80 degrees. the next we were sitting at 40 degrees. we went from 80 to 40. that cold front was directly down to the gulf of m
of ohio and michigan would look like today if mr. obama had not presided over the rescue of injury -- general motors. they depend on 850,000 jobs. they created the assembly and parts jobs in ohio. without it, chrysler and begin would have gone out of business and domestic industry supply chain would have collapsed taking ford with them. instead, u.s. auto makers are achieving huge gains in the fuel efficiency of their cars and trucks. who said that? >> mitt romney. >> stephanie: no. they go on to say the bailouts began under president george bush. mitt romney continued to oppose them. they're paying attention in ohio. they also say in the depths of the great recession no such investment was forthcoming. a high-powered businessman and the son of a detroit auto ceo who plays up his michigan roots might be expected to acknowledge that but no. [ applause ] alfranken will have to write an entire book about the romney campaign, the lies and liars to tell about this epic campaign. by the way here is a little shout out
affected by the hurricane. it says early voting is a key to this which mr. obama has counted on to boltster a second term will likely grind to a halt while power failures could last much of the week and conceivably until election day in some places. let's go to carl from west virginia on our republicans line. caller: good morning. i'm sure they will be blaming this on george bush. next week the liberal media will be comparing the great job obama did compared to what bush did in katrina. and i hope he does a better job than he did protecting our people in benghazi. i was a former combat marine and i'm disgusted about the way he hand that would thing in benghazi. thank you. host: caller jon in north carolina comments on the same lines as you. he writes benghazi is the storm that sealed the election. here is what the romney campaign is doing as they look at this storm. it says one of his senior advisors said despite impended wall to wall coverage on sandy he feels voters in the region have received enough information ahead of the election and reiterated the campaign's focus on the safety and w
here 10 years. i work for a small business. hasn't see what mr. obama done in the last four years to help me. the business i work for is not hiring. they don't know what to do with obamacare. this is a company that was built from nothing and they are paralyzed. my kids -- i pay more for gas. you talk about loudoun in 2008, and it was not about the bush tax cuts. i have lived here for 10 years. it was people's visceral reaction to the war. i have not seen anything from mr. obama in the last four years. my husband lost his job and all of my neighbors tied to the defense industry are so nervous that they are going to be next. i do not know how you can say mr. obama has done anything for loudoun county. host: let's get an answer from the chairman of the democratic party. guest: thank you for the question during the war that people were concerned about in 2008 has been ended. it was president obama who brought the termination of the war in iraq, and withdrawing troops from afghanistan and now prepared for nation-building here at home rather than afghanistan and iraq. that war has been
-election. take a look, right now, nationally, mr. obama has an 11-point advantage over mitt romney among women voters. that lead is even larger in some battleground states like ohio, where a recent cnn poll indicates the president has a 14-point edge over romney with women. and in virginia, where obama leads by 16 points. so what is behind those numbers? joining me now, gloria steinem, also the co-founder of "ms." magazine. good morning and thank you for joining us. >> good morning, and thank you. >> let me show you about the cover that we just showed there. describe the war on women as you see it today. >> the war on women is not actually a republican war, it's a war by the extremists who are now in control of the republican party. and what it means is first controlling reproduction. we're accustomed in this country to talking about production. we forget that controlling reproduction is even more important. so it would put women's bodies under literally government control with the human life amendment. it's also about refusing to support equal pay, which is quite astounding, because i don't r
. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total.
with federal emergency officials. mr. obama spoke with homeland security secretary janet napolitano and fema administrator craig fugate among others. they promise to bring all available resources to the hardest-hit areas prepositioning many right now. local governments are getting ready as well. seven states as well as d.c. have now declared states of emergency. the latest being connecticut. mandatory evacuations are now planned in both new york and new jersey. we're keeping an very close watch as well on the airports for you. at this point there are no major delays to report. but major problems are definitely possible in the coming days. all the major airlines are waiving fees for any passengers who want to reschedule their flights to the affected areas along the eastern seaboard. it is a big area. we have a team of correspondents deployed along the east coast including nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams in delaware. colleagues jim can torre and mike sidell are in new york city and new jersey. they will all be joining us throughout our coverage today. we begin here in s
clinton and rocker dave matthews. yesterday mr. obama picked up the endorsement of new york he campaigned in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. >>> meanwhile, republican nominee mitt romney starts the day with a campaign rally in wisconsin, and then heads to ohio for two more campaign events. he'll join his wife ann and running mate paul ryan in ohio. >>> in 90 minutes. the labor department will release the october unemployment report. economists say about 121,000 jobs were added. it would likely raise the rate slightly from 7.8% to 7.9% last month. >>> kwame brown could serve just six days when prison when sentenced november 13th. that's the recommendation prosecutors released yesterday. the former d.c. council chairman pleaded guilty in june to corruption charges. prosecutors admit his crime was serious but say brown deserves credit for accepting responsibility and cooperating. >>> a prince george's police officer will be in court for a bond hearing today, a day after being indicted on an attempted murder charge. prosecutors say sergeant johnnie riley shot and wounded calvin kyle after kyl
crisis. and mr. obama heads to the all important state of ohio later today. and for his part, mitt romney was in virginia at several campaign stops. he criticized the president for not doing enough to help businesses. also romney said the nation needs a president who understands business better. romney's aides are conceding that the storm's slowed some of his momentum, but they insist their internal polls show him ahead in some of those toss-up states. romney visits wisconsin and also ohio today. >>> and from the lighter side of politics, vice president biden went on david letterman's show last night to read his top ten list. >> ah, joe. the subject, the top ten reasons to vote early. here's some of the highlights. >> if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm being told that's not accurate. >> that's not accurate. number two. >> early voters receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> wow! and the number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen -- >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >> yes, we do! >> i think we all do, j
a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle
-storm opportunism. citizens in the northeast aren't turning on their tvs if they have electricity to hear mr. obama opine about subways letting. they're tuning in to hear governor chris christie talk about damage to the jersey shore, mayor bloomberg tell them when bus service might resume. and connecticut governor danell malloy to say when the state's highways might reopen. energetic governors and mayors are best equipped to handle disaster relief because they know their cities and neighborhoods far better than the feds ever will, and they know their citizens will hold them accountable. the feds can help with money and perhaps expertise. the larger liberal fallacy here is that effective government requires bigger government. actually, i think everybody needs everybody but, you know, whatever. >> i think what the world needs now is love, sweet love. so are they saying to the president's opportunistic here? >> making a jab at big government when actually this is the one time the government actually is needed. >> as we said, "the new york times" -- >> do you want to take a look and see if there's more
. this is an interesting idea. i don't know exactly how you'd move it forward, but it is interesting to contemplate. >> mr. king, are you planning to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonesty, the only thing left was "i'm christie vilsack
, that it is something that god intended to happen. you know, mr. donnelly's comments on obama care, happening there, reforming it, it's good to reform it, but it shouldn't be here in the first place. you know, the fact that we have the catholic church and so many institutions filing lawsuits to get their basic freedom that i thought was guaranteed under the constitution, the practice of your religion, that now there has to be an amendment put forward to bring that about. if the law was never passed, the lawsuit wouldn't be in place, and religious freedom, today, would not be in question. >> moderator: continuing with rebuttals, mr. horning, 30 seconds. horning: there's a lot of misunderstanding, and there's no real winning the issue. unfortunately, it's one of those that, you know, it's an outcome of something terrible happening sometimes, and it's dealing with life situation nobody wants. we can't do justice to it. as a federal legislature, i can't do justice to it. i would fail in what i would try to achieve. >> moderator: thank you. mr. donnelly? donnelly: my faith guided me on the issue, and i
for president obama, that's pretty much the story, i think. >> mr. caputo, let me bring new you've in on this. the poll shows two point ahead for governor romney in florida, that within the margin of error. my team and i were struck with looking at the lines of people early voting in that state today. >> well, those lines are really going to be the indication of how this campaign is going to go. we've had gangbusters early voting turnout in florida. about two million people in a week. because of early voting, democrats have an edge and ballots cast of about 104,000 over republicans. republicans usually do well at mail and absentee ballots. democrats dominate early voting. but guess what? the legislature, rick scott shortened the early voting days. and relative to the early voting hours we had in 2008 in south florida, they essentially cut them by 22% or about 24 hours. so it's going to make a difference. what we're going to see on election day now is a lot of those folks who probably would have early voted, they're going to show up on election day and cast ballots. so the question is how many
of the races in that state. part of the battle ground series, mr. hubbard, if we could go to "denver post," endorsement, who did you endorse and why? guest: we endorsed president obama. especially on the debt and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor r
. you've got an obama e-mail during the hurricane hey, you've got a phone, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the
are the concerns some democrats have with elizabeth warren and the same with independents who are leery of mr. brown? >> liz warren is trying to get out the democrats voting for obama to come out for her and make sure the turnout is big. obama is expected to win big here, and the question is how big? it's sort of like a point spread in sports. the teams the field may have one definition of winning and the betters have another. she needs a big spread here and brown needs a smaller spread. that's what's the difference in all these polls, the margin of victory there. brown is trying to make sure he cuts into her democratic state and really overwhelmingly pins independents, and he's doing well. depending on the poll he's doing very, very well or pretty well. all these things make a difference in a close election. but that's why he's been appealing to being a bipartisan figure and at the same time trying to undermine any strength she has by saying she has character issues. >> thank you very much. great pleasure to have you on. >> thank you. >> massive layoffs tops our look at stories around the na
? the moderate pro choice governor from massachusetts, the guy who goo gave us the model for obama care or hangs closely with hawks, joins with religious right. is he dr. jekyll or mr. hyde, or is he both or neither? jack kennedy once said he felt sorry for his rival richard nixon because he doesn't know who he is and each stop he has to decide which nixon he is at the moment. worse case? do you think this guy mr. romney will suddenly have the force of will to betray the right? have you seen a single case when romney's broken free from the mob that's brought him this far, a single sister soldier when he says of the trumps, sununu
? to chris's point, why not have some secondary surrogates, whether it's paul ryan or mrs. romney or the romney boys go to those states and just buying it. i remember that very well. even though, chris, the obama campaign is dismissing the idea romney is seriously competing in these states, should they have sparener to shore up those voti ttleground map, and this has been one of the asmall, narrow . you have battleground polls show you don't want to bleed yourself so much, even with the amount of money both campaigns have, that you actually make it easier for the other side to make inroads. >> i'm out of time but i want to ask you each really, really quickly for your guy, on the democratic side, chris, where are we going to see the president going over the weekend, the last weekend of this campaign? >> that's obvious, ohio, ohio, ohio. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. how about you, robert? where is romney going? >> ohio and most likely he will end his campaign in new hampshire. new hampshire is still very much in play. and maybe hawaii. he might go to hawaii. i heard romney may go to hawaii.
, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather re

governor romney won hands down all these debates. >> i am proud of president barack obama. he is presidential, a statesman, and when romney is asked a question, he looks like a man that cannot take pressure. >> mr. romney seemed to me to be a little wishy-washy. earlier in the debate, he made a statement about having a backbone. later he states that he wants to work with china, he wants to deal with pakistan. >> i want to say something about the moderators in these debates. i think they are one-sided, i think. i believe in governor romney and i hope people open their eyes and take notice of what is going on in our country. >> romney answers the questions. everybody keeps saying he kept tiptoeing around them, and he is not. he is straightforward. he is consistent, as to where obama has not been consistent. >> i thought the debate lagged off the questions. it got away from the foreign policy, and they started talking about the domestic economy, and i was trying to tie that in into what the questions were, and i do not think either candidate -- they kept going back to the economy
